yeah i know. i got lucky. still, i was really cautious toward the beginning of the route. thats why there are so many distance discrepancies. and the fact that i sometimes stopped videoing before the train came to a complete stop.

if you look carefully in the exchange place vid, there was a cop so i freaked out. he didn't catch me though. whew.

Those were all excellent! Its been a while since I just ride PATH and stand at the RFW.

And I love the door chimes on PATH, its just a whole symphony of them!

 

BTW, in the third video, was that train in the beginning in service? Its been a while since I've seen or been on an in-service train that had to go via the yard. Last time I've experience that happening was back in 2006 or so, and it was fun. I hope they do that next time I'm going to Newark during midday or on a weekend to have a nice better look at the PA-5s other than blowing past one on the line or one thats in the yard.

You gotta ride again pablo, the drivers are as crazy as evar! I love the chimes too. Reminds me of that train w/ the funky acceleration sound. You know what's really cool, are the mile long NS trash trains that run next to the path ROW. Some of them use articulated cars.

That reminds me, out of the stock that PATH uses currently, which ones have a good acceleration sound? Does anyone have a spec sheet? I think they all use GE traction motors, but that's just me...

To be honest it depends on how well they are kept up. Some of the cars are just funky sounding and need to be pulled from service in a few years, but some of the PA3 cars sound very "industrial" as they speed up from stopped.
